Reminder: Illegal Posting of Campaign Signs

Posted on

To our libertarian supporters:

Please remember that everyone must follow Maryland and local laws with respect to posting campaign signs. This is especially important with respect to placing signs on private property without the permission of the owner or on public property (including on public rights of way on streets and highways).

We don’t know who, but someone has been posting Gary Johnson campaign signs on public rights of way in Montgomery County. Such signs can create a traffic hazard as they may interfere with traffic control signs or otherwise distract motorists. While the signs being posted are not the type of signs distributed by the Libertarian Party of Maryland, illegal posting of campaign signs can result in the offender being cited and if found guilty, there can be very substantial fines.

It is great that libertarians want to spread the word in support of Gary’s campaign, but we don’t want any of our supporters to be cited for such violations and we also want to encourage only the lawful posting of campaign signs.
